LIBYAPROSPECT – Tripoli
The spokesperson of the Libyan Navy forces, Ayoub Qassem, said, on Sunday, that the Libyan territorial waters are penetrated continuously by many fishing boats.
Qassem stated, in a press release, that the situation in the regional waters is not stable on the western side of Libya; adding that he doesn’t know about the eastern side of the country. He stressed that the regional waters on the west side of the country are penetrated by Tunisian, Maltese, Italian, and other boats violating the marine wealth and the national sovereignty.
Qassem stated that the Libyan legal sanctions are not deterrent and the procedures to implement the laws take a long time because of the collapse of the Libyan Dinar that makes the financial penalties very cheap.
